Somerset wholesaler takes stand at IJL to promote its pearls.

Raw Pearls, which has been supplying jewellers in the UK since 1980, will make a debut appearance at International Jewellery London in September.

The company is ramping up its trade promotion this year with its exhibit at IJL, plus becoming a sponsor of the Goldsmiths’ Craft and Design Council awards.


Raw Pearl’s Jonathan Raw says that the company is growing this year thanks to its efforts to work closely with the trade, and because pearls are back in fashion with younger women. “With our UK workshop we aim to provide the very best customer service for the trade, and as a family business we establish relationships that last. We are already seeing increased growth due to improving consumer confidence coupled with the recent fashion focus on pearls and the 2013 ‘Pearls’ exhibition at the V&A. There has never been a better time to work with Raw Pearls,” he said.

IJL takes place at from August 31 to September 2 at London’s Olympia.
